Fans continued their debate on Majors’ innocence as the news of his latest Perseverance Award surfaced on social media. Some fans on X still believed that he had done nothing wrong and deserved the award. One fan shared that the new award would help revive his career as the next big star. Another fan still finds Marvel’s firing of the actor as unfair.

On the other hand, some fans opposed giving the Perseverance Award to Majors since he was found guilty on some charges. One fan commented that the latest recognition for the actor was a complete joke. Another fan was not at all impressed that Hollywood finds abusing women as “aspiring to inspire”. Some of the fan reactions read:



The Hollywood Unlocked Impact Awards night will be marked by special performances from Fantasia Barrino, hip-hop artist Yellopain, and gospel singer Karen Clark Sheard. The event will be pre-recorded and will air exclusively on The Zeus Network.
